The world becomes a dream....

« on: September 25, 2017, 10:06:33 AM »

Anybody catch it last night? What'd you think? I missed the first ten minutes and then missed the last twenty comforting a six-year-old with a nightmare (about shadows with claws that moved!) but I do plan on seeing if I can catch it online or On Demand. I am not sure yet how I feel about it but I do know I have loved every Star Trek series and that in every case they had to grow on me and at first I did not enjoy them.

Watched it. For an hour long show not much seemed to happen. I suppose they're setting up a long-running story which will last all season. I'd ratcher see a complete story every episode.

On a side note, is the next episode coming to TV, or do I have to download CBS' new streaming app?

I believe that was a sample and you will need the streaming service. (Bad idea.)

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

I enjoyed it - good character development and interactions, Klingons at their villainous best.  Hate that it is going to be pay-per-view, though.

It has kept me interested so far.

Now I haven't seen every iteration of the Star Trek franchise, but to me it is a very atypical show. Star Trek as I understand it, is an ensemble piece: the crew of a ship (or space station) boldly going in the unknown, with a group of characters centered around the captain. Discovery is very much the story of just one character (who should have been a captain), on a foreign ship, pitted against the captain and the rest of crew.

I don't know yet whether this is a good thing or not. Still, it is intriguing enough to keep me watching.

That one theory has been confirmed. 

The one about Voq and Ash Tyler.

God of making the characteristic which becomes dirty sends the hurricane.
